In association with EAA nationwide, we make the thrill and benefits of flight available to young people. All kids 8-17 are invited to their first genuine flying experience, sitting in the front right seat and actually manipulating the controls under the guidance of the pilot: yoke (ailerons and rudder) and pedals (rudder).
During most Raiies, YE's will also fly our in-hangar simulators running EAA's Virtual Flight Academy. After the Rally your Young Eagle can download the same PC software for free from TakeFlight Interactive as well as free Sporty's Ground School courseware. Your young aviator can to learn to fly at any age.

You don't have to be a kid to get your start in aviation. And why should the only the youngest have all the fun? Many young adults have yet to be introduced to the thrill of flying, and there is enormous demand for pilots and other skilled aeronautical professionals. All are wonderful and highly rewarding professions for folks with all sorts of skills: flight, engineering, mechanical and electronic systems, operations, management, and more! EAA has begun to develop an Eagle Flights program for young adults interested in a life in aviation. Our chapter is looking into having an Eagle Flights program locally. If you're a pilot and would like to volunteer to fly young adults, or provide leadership in setting up this program, please contact our Young Eagle coordinator at the email address above.
